GikIII, a two day workshop on the intersections between law, technology and popular culture, will be held on September 24-25, 2008 in Oxford.
Previous Gikiis have featured net neutrality explained via LOLcats, the surveillance implications of Harry Potter, how to regulate Killer Robots, the first ever Facebook privacy paper, why Japanese manga porn is a challenge for TRIPS, fansubbing and the law, self regulation and slash communities on Live Journal, privacy as seen through sf films, 5D sensory trademarks, blogging and data protection, and why Irish medieval history foresaw Creative Commons. They are generally well attended, mind-blowing and fun:) Numbers will be limited to c. 40 to enable participation. A small number of attendees not presenting papers may be allowed in at cost price if numbers allow.
If you would like to participate, email your abstract of no more than 500 words to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by July 15 2008. We will confirm acceptances by August 1. Abstracts may be accepted after this date depending on whether the workshop is full.
